Oxford hunts historic race machinery

1 of 4

Following the recent grand opening of its newly developed 100,000sqft distribution centre, Oxford Products is on the hunt for some of its historic race machinery to add some glamour to the finished buildings.

The company’s wish list includes the Ducati 888 racers which competed in the hands of Trevor Nation, Robert Dunlop, Steve Hislop, Jim Moodie and Jeremy McWilliams, and the Peckett-McNabb Kawasaki bikes ridden by Asa Joyce, Les Burgan and Mike Hunt during the late ‘70s.

Oxford’s early race exploits extended to the Isle of Man, where in 1981 Phil Read rode an Oxford Yoshimura Suzuki, and in 1984 Trevor Nation won the 750cc production TT aboard an Oxford CBX750.

More recently, the company has title sponsored the TAG Triumph British Supersport team and Buildbase BMW.

Any unearthed bikes will join John Hammond’s immaculate 1961 Aermacchi, which greets visitors in the reception area of Oxford’s headquarters.

If you can help Oxford in their quest, please contact Marketing Director Henry Rivers Fletcher at henry@oxprod.com.
